In an event-driven architecture, each production event generates a message that is sent to a central system, which then informs other parts of the infrastructure or triggers actions. Because this process occurs in real time, this architecture is particularly suited to applications that require fast, data-driven decisions. Operational events affect everything from the completion of a welding robot’s task, to machine malfunction reports, to the pickup of a shipment, to to receipt of a new order by an automated guided vehicle (AGV).
Event-driven data architectures bring several benefits to production environments, including rapid response to evolving events, effortless scalability due to autonomous components and robust resilience against system downtime when a component fails. Furthermore, this unified, comprehensive strategy prevents the development of data silos and accelerates the deployment of complex software.
The success stories of our customers show how the strategic decision for a Factory Data Hub brings future-proof scalability.
